I was all set to purchase some mass loaded for a vocal booth I’m building, but then I ran across this article, which gives me pause. How does “soundproof drywall” really compare to MLV? The more I try to figure these things out the more confused I get.

D, There is no such thing as ‘soundproof drywall”. You must measure the frequency and amplitude of the noise and then build the proper barrier using materials that have the proper density to reduce the noise transmission.
